ON THE BACK BURNER

June 29

Today lived up to its hype. It was dangerously hot. My son, who walks to work, came home early, with a beet red face. I have the only A C. in our compound, so he came here before even going into his house. This morning, we were only 4 people out of a usual 12 at exercise class. There were 4 large fans, so we each got our own fan. My Mah Jongg game was cancelled, which made me unhappy, but I can surely understand. The people react here to the heat news, the same way we react in Florida to approaching hurricanes. Everyone gets a little anxious. My AC is temperamental and now that I have it going, I hesitate to change anything. I also have several large fans going  to keep Dixie cool. I took Dixie for a very abbreviated walk. I also took the clippers with me because I wanted to clip some of the greenery that grows a foot a day, it seems. I did the best that I could, but Dixie really had to go back into the pod. I had to decide if I was going to bake sandwich rolls today or break down and go to the store for bread. I decided to bake. Maybe not the best idea on the hottest day ever, here, but the buns do look so good cooling. And the pod smells great.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
